I appreciate your question.

Since there has been a change in your post op course, please contact your surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Best of luck!

Two possibilities is that this  may represent fat necrosis or infection and you should see your surgeon to evaluate it.

Thank you for your question.  An examination is necessary to help answer your question.  In looking at your photo, you may have delayed bruising (hemosiderin deposits).  See your surgeon for an examination.  Best wishes.

BBL and bruising

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Thanks for the question and photos.

A physical exam is necessary to diagnose what is going on.  It could be bruising coming out from deeper layers or fat necrosis.  Infection is a possibility but probably more rare at this point with your complaints.  Sometimes it can be pigmentation that can be semi permanent.

Hope all goes well.

Good luck.

Discoloration after BBL

Based on your photo, this looks like bruising after fat injections. If this is new, after 2 months from surgery, I would have you see your plastic surgeon to fully assess the area. You will likely get reassurance only but it is important to make sure nothing worrisome is occurring. Best wishes.
